Schenectady will be the focus of the Community Loan Fund of the Capital Region’s annual spring tour this year.
The tour, starting at 4 p.m. Wednesday, will kick off at the Albany-based nonprofit’s new satellite office at 920 Albany St. in the Hamilton Hill neighborhood. The Community Loan Fund, which has a mission of promoting sustainable community development for economically underserved communities in the Capital Region, opened the office earlier this year to provide more access to the area’s low-income business owners and nonprofits.
The tour focuses on community-based economic development projects and will feature stops at an affordable housing unit, a community justice center, a cafe and a mixed-use building. Afterward, there will be a reception at the satellite office.
The event is free but RSVPs are needed as the tour will be by CDTA bus. To RSVP, email Willow Berg at firstname.lastname@example.org. For information, contact Linda Chandler at 436-8587 ext. 806.
Free parking is available on Albany Street and in the Schenectady Community Action Program lot across the street.
